Project SEARCH HSN helps students prepare for the workforce

Everyone at HSN is proud to welcome our second year Project Search Interns!

An international program that helps students who require additional support prepare for the world of work is in its second year in Greater Sudbury thanks to an ongoing partnership between Rainbow District School Board, Health Sciences North, the City of Greater Sudbury and March of Dimes Canada.

Like last year’s program, ten students from Rainbow Schools will engage in three internships in various departments at Health Sciences North. Placements are eight to ten weeks long and are determined by student interest and skill level. Internships are guided by skilled, experienced staff including a teacher from Rainbow District School Board and two job trainers from March of Dimes Canada.

“Project SEARCH challenges outdated barriers and aims to help create a more inclusive society - and everyone at HSN is proud to be a part of it,” said Mark Hartman, Interim President and CEO of Health Sciences North. “The new interns will be a great asset to the hospital, and it will be our privilege to help them develop the skills and confidence they need to thrive and build bright futures for themselves.”
